military aggression by the united states and i the western powers now there's also very much a sense of anger amongst many people here at suggestions by some senior western political figures and media figures that somehow chavez's death is a cause to celebrate that somehow it's a good thing for the venezuelan people and for the wilds of course the grief very much continues amongst the people here in caracas who have come to see him sections held in approximately thirty days time now of course the outcome of that election is very much unknown but at least amongst the people here that very much determined that maduro must replace chavez with one of the most popular chunks here being with chavez the people are say they feel and what's he got i guess well the opposition in venezuela has boycotted the swearing in ceremony for nicolas maduro calling it a fraud but latin american expert steve ballmer says they still fall short of

6:11 am
a teleprompter but i put every word there myself which is probably why john kerry is spelled with a q but my question is would kerry and prompter mr obama just read anything put in front of them to even really know the realities of the tiriel they're reading in their speeches if you were deeply versed on some subject and you should need to read word for word from the teleprompter to give a speech just try writing some notes and speaking with your brain and maybe your heart like in the good old days but that's just my opinion. mission. critical three months for three. months free. free. free.

6:18 am
a crowded bus in montgomery alabama that incident became a formative event in the u.s. civil rights movement and again this week israelis and palestinians are remembering that incident as the transport ministry introduces segregated bus lines in other words bus services only for kind of stimulus coming in and out of the west bank the move has created the most of reaction both for and against it both inside and outside of israel the israeli transport ministry justifies it by saying that the move is an attempt to alleviate the distress of palestinian passengers having to travel for long hours in and out of israel but the truth is that behind the scenes there was a lot of noise being made by israeli settlers who refused to travel with palestinian passengers they say because they're afraid now newspaper editorials have had a field day with criticisms that israel is acting in line with apostate that this smacks of racism and it echoes of the segregation policies back in the united states decades ago the palestinian passengers on this bus saved leaves
6:19 am
a bad taste in their mouths but the irony is that it cuts they travel time as they no longer have to travel through the settlements the ticket is a lot cheaper and the whole travel journey is a lot less stressful seven ages very hard to live with this you can call it a racist action or whatever but it makes it even more impossible for both sides to understand one another. we're supposed to be working in a civilized country but they're separate not at all i feel like israeli people look at as a second class are not equal to the. little bit with me. i feel very bad it is not acceptable at all but in the end of the strong side decides what happens when we have to deal with this reality but the segregation here runs much deeper than just separate bus services we're talking different about. legal systems phase way to palestinians we're talking about a different allocation of resources and preferential treatment to name just a few. on the way from qalqilya. russian microsatellite

the wreckage of a decommissioned chinese satellite that had been floating around since two thousand and seven there is an abundance of space debris there and even an object the size of a key can cause serious damage with this is thomas he is the man to consult and so . should we be worried well you know think of it this way we've been shooting things up in space for more than fifty years now so there's thousands of objects flying around a thousand miles per hour if they hit anything it can do some serious damage let me talk about this specific event and then talk about the bigger picture this particular incident talked about space junk from this chinese satellite that was destroyed in two thousand and seven and then it hit a russian blitz satellite now this happened on january twenty second but it took a while to figure out exactly what happened because scientists discovered that there was a change in the trajectory of change in the orbit of the russian satellite there like what could have caused this and then they had to work backwards to try and
6:21 am
figure out when this incident happened and then when they found that they discovered that there was a near miss of these two and then when they decided that this couldn't have been an actual miss that it was an actual collision now if you look at the bigger picture there's about nineteen thousand pieces of space debris that are larger than ten centimeters that are being tracked by the world community right now why because well we shoot things into space we don't want them to come into contact with our satellites that are millions and millions of dollars worth of basically a commodity if you will and so they're being tracked but there's also more than three hundred thousand smaller pieces less than one centimeter just floating around out there as well thousands of miles per hour so what happens is that these little pieces of debris cause course. corrections and caused the space station and our satellites to have to maneuver and change how they do things and that costs people on earth millions of dollars each year also it puts our astronauts in jeopardy as
6:22 am
well we've had many instances recently more and more becoming frequently where the astronauts basically have to hide in the ferry of the stories capsule to avoid a piece of space junk that is coming closer to the international space station so there's actually something called the kessler syndrome as well where it's a critical mass if you will so much space junk so much space debris out there that we won't be able to even send anything into space anymore and there's some debate as to whether we've hit that critical mass or not but as we put more stuff out there more junk is created and it becomes more expensive and harder to actually put things up in space so what can we do what can we do one thing the european union is considering is having a more broad. tracking system if you will they have a special telescope that is designed down in australia that actually tracks these pieces of debris so we can keep track of the bigger pieces which you know i mean they can be anything from ten centimeters to maybe the size of
6:23 am
a football or even larger or but these even these small like tiny pieces less than a centimeter can do significant damage so with the smaller pieces not much you can do. maybe some future technology that we can develop to try and collect it all but who knows at this point i'm all we can do is track what we can and hope for the best for the meantime sounds like they're the problem is still there and we can expect certain situations like that citation thank you very much. my twitter is one of the fastest ways to share your thoughts on line and could prove a huge resource for the future generations to study the sites you create for the massive archive of blogs to be still would at the u.s. library of congress for research purposes but two years on and it's still in the accessible this is full speed finding. it's part of the social media landscape that has revolutionized the way we communicate. twitter allows users to broadcast their thoughts one hundred forty characters at
6:24 am
a time. from the very first tweet to declaring historic presidential victories to the downright dumb all of it has been stored at the library of congress well the popularity of smartphones and i pads users can tweet pretty much anywhere at any time and the library of congress is taking note of the way people are communicating and expressing themselves along with journals and other publications social media is being stored as a part of history it began in two thousand and ten when twitter agreed to hand over to the library every tweet since the social media site launched and the tweets keep being stored with an estimated half a billion tweets per day it's a massive undertaking basically taking this body of information about the culture of this country and putting it into some kind of storage well we're talking about one hundred fifty. well now that the library has collected this massive archive
6:25 am
it's not clear what they're going to do with it how do you search that how do you how do you how do you catalog that and split it into searchable pieces of content and they haven't been able to figure that out yet. the libraries blog says quote although the library has been building and stabilizing the archive and has not yet offered researchers access we have nevertheless received approximately four hundred inquiries from researchers all over the world so far the library tells us the goal is for researchers to have access to the database not the general public and we asked are there any limits to what information the library can distribute the library tells us they've set a few no tweets newer than six months old will be handed over to researchers and the tweets can. be used for commercial purposes and researchers can make a big chunk of tweets available for downloading on their website still questions remain if you delete a tweet does the library still store it and how easily can law enforcement obtain
6:26 am
your tweets if people are worried about privacy i'm pretty sure the n.s.a. and homeland security has already coped through a lot of that stuff so perhaps the take away as they think before you tweet because it's going to be stored right here at the library of congress and washington liz wall r.t. . are you watching all this because abbi mohsin is on the way in a few minutes but another hard hitting breaking said. his power was the envy of ambrose. he had good reason to trust no one. his body was found on the floor of his huge empty house. but did he die of natural causes. the mystery of stalin's day want to see.

allowed to carry the knives you see here in addition to clubs and bats i guess they just realize that with these items banned were no safer than we were before and don't even get me started on the radioactive naked body scanners that presented us with more danger than safety in two thousand and ten scientists determined that airport scanners are just as likely to kill you via cancer as a terrorist low enough airplane. but perhaps it's even more absurd than this is another recent t.s.a. announcement that has come out in the wake of the sequestration despite concerns that in the budget cuts will result in the furloughs firm floyds agency officials just signed on a contract for fifth. million dollars worth of new uniforms yep fifty million dollars has billions in federal cuts threaten to affect thousands of employee jobs so what's the moral of the story here well it's no new tale the t.s.a. is a completely useless agency with that eighty million dollar annual budget create a.
